If Ferro is not the one to always know the right thing to do, at least he has always the right proverb ready. Perhaps that’s not exactly how a future teenage mother pictures her boyfriend, but what else can Cate and Ferro do other than hope for ”the boat to rise with the water“. Their parenthood is some fifteen years ahead of schedule and their parents are even less ready than they are. The two embark on a stormy nine-month journey which alienates them from their high school mates, sends them through wild temptations and jealousy and at some point even leaves them homeless …

Roan Johnsons speedy ever-surprising comedy gets you to love this child you haven’t even seen once!
